Lake District Maintenance

Lake District Maintenance shift into winter campaign

“Slow down and stay safe,” is the important principal of this campaign said Seth Hunter, LDM Operations Manager for Service Area 24.

Employees of Lake District Maintenance (LDM), volunteers of the Houston fire department, and an officer of the Houston RCMP earnestly worked together on Oct. 20 to hand out educational pamphlets about safe winter driving to the public.

“Slow down and stay safe,” is the important principal of this campaign said Seth Hunter, LDM Operations Manager for Service Area 24.

The intention of this campaign was to inform people about ways to prepare their vehicles for the winter weather. And the best way LDM felt to do that was to wave down the high traffic between 8:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. on Hwy. 16 to get the widest potential reach of information out there.

Preparations like installing winter tires, getting vehicles ready with a maintenance check up, changing wiper blades to winterones, clearing snow and ice from all windows and lights, mirrors, and hood of roof before driving, bringing along a chargedcell phone, making sure windshield washer reservoir is full, packing a winter survival kit, and keeping the gas tank topped upwere some of the many suggestions outlined in the pamphlets that were handed out.
